What is idiopathic gastroparesis?

Gastroparesis is defined as the weakness of the muscles of the stomach. Gastroparesis brings about the poor crushing of food in the stomach into little particles and slow purging of food from the stomach into the small digestive tract.

The stomach is an empty organ made basically out of the muscle. Solid Food that has been gulped is stored in the stomach while it is ground into small pieces by the consistent agitating produced by rhythmic contractions of the stomach's muscles.

In Idiopathic gastroparesis the reason behind the disease is not known.
